John McCracken: Works from 1963-2011

Featured image is reproduced from <I>John McCracken: Works from 1963-2011</I>.John McCracken (1934–2011) occupies a singular position within the recent history of American art, as his work melds the restrained formal qualities of Minimalist sculpture with a distinctly West Coast sensibility expressed through color, form and finish. He developed his early sculptural work while studying painting at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland in the late 1950s and early 1960s. While experimenting with increasingly three-dimensional canvases, the artist began to produce objects made with industrial materials, including plywood, sprayed lacquer and pigmented resin, creating the highly reflective, smooth surfaces that he was to become known for. This catalogue charts the evolution of McCracken’s diverse oeuvre, encompassing both well-known and lesser-seen examples of the artist’s production from the early 1960s up through his death in 2011, presenting a range of sculptures, paintings and sketches.

John McCracken: Works from 1963-2011

John McCracken: Works from 1963-2011"Bright" (2006) is by John McCracken, a featured artist at the David Zwirner booth at Frieze New York this week and one of the artists represented in our Frieze bookstore. In the book, an absolute essential for any serious contemporary art library, Anne Reeve asks McCracken about his relationship to the term "Minimalism." He responds, "It’s a term I thought was kind of appropriate. I don’t like some of the other ones, like 'Finish Fetish.' But 'Minimalism' seems to me to be kind of appropriate and okay to use, and it communicates usually what you’re trying to say or talk about… That less is cool or something like that. The reason I don’t like 'Finish Fetish' is that it kind of limits everything to just a finish and it makes it seem kind of kooky also to call it a fetish. But 'Minimalism' seems to attempt to reduce things as far as they can go, or at least that’s how it is for me." When Reeve asks, "What about beauty—is it important to you that the works be beautiful?" McCracken answers, "Oh yeah, yeah, I like beautiful things." continue to blog
